Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

An easy to make whole wheat pizza dough. Turn pizza night into a fun night by allowing the kids to make this dough in the mixer and then do the kneading.





This is a super tasting pizza dough. I was given a fifty pound bag of whole wheat. So I needed to come up with something to help use up the flour. I love the texture that this crust has, it's really easy to spread in the pan and it turns out perfectly.

Homemade pizza dough is amazing! Homemade Whole Wheat Pizza dough is out of this world!





Whole Wheat Pizza Dough



1 teaspoon white sugar
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour

In a large bowl, dissolve sugar in warm water. Sprinkle yeast over the top, and let stand for about 10 minutes, until foamy.

Stir the olive oil and salt into the yeast mixture, then mix in both flours until dough starts to come together. Knead until all of the flour has been absorbed, and the ball of dough becomes smooth, about 10 minutes. Cover loosely with a towel, and let stand in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

When the dough is doubled, divide into 2 pieces for 2 thin crust, or leave whole to make one thick crust.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees . Roll a ball of dough with a rolling pin. Place in an oiled pan and stretch until it has reached the desired size. Bake for about 10 minutes. Then top with favorite pizza toppings. Bake for another 10-15 minutes or until crust is brown and cheese is golden.
